We are testing I7 4770K (OC) with RX 5700 XT. Test of 8 games in FULL HD – What the overclocked I7 4770K will show with the RX 5700 XT, one of the best cards from AMD at the time of 2019-2020. The overclocked I7 4770K is downright weak for the RX 5700 XT. Nevertheless, let’s see what this bundle is capable of.
And the I7 4770K, without overclocking, generally falls short of this video card. Therefore, you can study the overclocking of the intel i74770k processor on our website.
We will test the Intel I7 4770K with the RX 5700 XT in 8 popular games from different developers with different optimizations:

Video version of I7 4770K test with RX 5700 XT
Battlefield V (2018)
I7 4770K + RX 5700 XT в Battlefield V (2018)
In the game Battlefield V, the emphasis is periodically on the processor, although in some moments the video card is more than 90% loaded. The minimum FPS is 61, the average FPS is 119. With this bundle you can play in 2K resolution.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (2015)
I7 4770K + RX 5700 XT в The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (2015)
In Witcher 3, a bundle of I7 4770K with RX 5700 XT shows the result of more than 120 FPS, while the minimum FPS is 83. Most of the time the video card is loaded at 90% or more. Here we run into the performance of the RX 5700 XT. The Witcher 3 can be played in 2K resolution.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider (2018)
I7 4770K + RX 5700 XT в Shadow of the Tomb Raider (2018)
In Shadow of The Tomb Raider, the emphasis is on the processor. RX 5700 XT does not load more than 90%, more often less.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (2018)
I7 4770K + RX 5700 XT в Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (2018)
The behavior of the RX 5700 XT in this game is a bit odd. Weaker cards like GTX 1660 Super or GTX 1070 perform better. The game is highly optimized for Nvidia cards. From this and such a low FPS. Although the processor also falls short.
Hitman 2 (2018)
I7 4770K + RX 5700 XT в Hitman 2 (2018)
Everything is great in Hitman 2. The results are more than excellent. Periods in the RX 5700 XT, periods at 4770K. The results are good FPS.
Doom Eternal (2020)
I7 4770K + RX 5700 XT в Doom Eternal (2020)
Doom Eternal, RX 5700 XT and I7 4770K are handled without any problems. This bundle can be played at ultra settings in 4K.
Resident Evil 2 Remake (2019)
I7 4770K + RX 5700 XT в Resident Evil 2 Remake (2019)
In the Resident Evil 2 remake, the focus is on the graphics card. But the results are well over 100 FPS on average. The minimum FPS is almost 100.
Metro Exodus 2 (2018)
I7 4770K + RX 5700 XT в Metro Exodus 2 (2018)
At METRO EXODUS, the result is poor. In this benchmark, the emphasis is on both the processor and the video card. They are both weak for this snippet. But playing at ultra settings with a stable 60 FPS is fine.
According to the test results, we can say that the I7 4770K + RX 5700 XT bundle performed quite well. It would be enough for 2-4K gaming in most games. But a video card for this processor in some games will be superfluous. Most likely, the RX 5600 XT card would be more suitable for the I7 4770K. And the RX 5700 XT is more powerful for processors. If we talk about the unclocked I7 4770K, then the RX 5700 XT will be definitely redundant.
We also have tests of this video card with Ryzen 7 2700x:
